Nope Trailer: Daniel Kaluuya & Keke Palmer Have a Close Encounter in Jordan Peele’s New T

Jordan Peele is back with a new film which is set to be a thriller featuring Daiel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer. Releasing July 22nd, this new film will be released in theaters only.

Just before the Super Bowl, Jordan and Universal Pictures dropped the first trailer for “Nope,” the upcoming third feature film from the acclaimed director behind “Get Out” and “Us.” The studio released the first extended look at the upcoming thriller early Sunday morning.

Following a similar Marketing plan as Jordan did for his film “Us”, the plot of “Nope” has largely been kept a secret. The only information that was initially shared about this coming film was that Daniel Kaluuya, who received an Oscar nomination for his lead performance in “Get Out,” would reunite with Peele, and that Keke Palmer had been cast in a key role. According to Variety, new information has officially been released, with Steven Yeun joining the cast a month later, and Barbie Ferreira, Brandon Perea and Michael Wincott later rounding out the ensemble. Peele also unveiled the first official poster for the film, which depicts an ominous cloud hanging over what appears to be a carnival, with a kite streamer trailing underneath.

Peele serves as writer, producer and director on “Nope.” Ian Cooper also produces and Robert Graf serves as the executive producer. The film was shot using Kodak film and, in addition to regular formats, will also be released in a 65mm IMAX format. The cinematographer for “Nope” is Hoyte van Hoytema, who most recently lensed weighty science-fiction films like “Ad Astra” and “Tenet.”

“Nope” is set to hit theaters on July 22.

Watch the full trailer below:


The 32-second teaser begins with a montage of both Get Out and Peele’s 2019 film Us before showing three consecutive shots of Kaluuya, Yeun and Palmer in different scenes, gazing upwards. The expressions could allude to the menacing poster for the film, which features an ominous cloud.

The film will have cinematography from Hoyte van Hoytema who’s contributed to Let the Right One InSpectre, and the Christopher Nolan films Interstellar, Oscar-nominated film Dunkirk, and Tenet. Hoytema will also work on Nolan’s next film Oppenheimer.
